Canon 200mm f1.8L - aka "the eye of Sauron"

Min focus 2.5m (8.5ft.)

Bayonet , PL mount

200mm f/1.8 only saw 8,000 produced during its run from 1988 through 2004.

Compared to the ultra-rare $180,000 1200mm f/5.6L, of which around 12 were made, the 200mm f/1.8 often shows up on the market and a used one can be purchased for around $3,000 to $4,000 these days. Not bad for a lens touted as the fastest 200mm lens ever produced.
